Bee Removal Service
Free Hanging Swarms: I remove swarms that have not entered a cavity such as a wall or tree. The swarm typically lands somewhere and forms a large ball of bees such as in the picture below. My typical charge for this service is $80.

Established Colony

For The Removal Of Established Colonies: I no longer provide a service to remove bees once established in a cavity such as in a wall or tree. You may be able to find a hobbyist willing to do that. Try the Monterey Beekeepers Group at http://montereybaybeekeepers.org/ otherwise plan to spend between $600 and $3000 for the removal and repair. Some of the listed beekeepers at http://montereybaybeekeepers.org/ will do that type of work. See Swarm Information before you decide to spend that kind of money as you may decide just to leave them alone until they die on their own.
